smashed mitt romney last night. >> obama: in the 1980s or now calling and ask for their foreign policy back. we visited their web site quite a bit and it still doesn't work. governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military has changed. >> cenk: a lot more of that. that's going to be fun! we've got match-ups. then we've got mitt romney sweating up a storm. what was he so nervous about? mark hamill is back in the studio to break that part of the debate down. >> there's like scripted drama where you couldn't believe the stunned look on his face. >> cenk: and then reverend jesse jackson joins us to break down the sensata controversy. >> make no mistake about it, sensata, freeport, illinois, is ground zero on the american fight to keep jobs here in the united states.

.8% of the popular vote. mitt romney has 46.9% the new york times 538 blog says if the election were held today, the president would win 291 electoral votes. mitt romney would get 247. 270 are needed to win the white house. 538 says the president has a 71% chance of winning. romney has a 29% chance. and as of tonight, 7.7 million people have already voted and that includes the president who cast his own ballot today in chicago. we'll have much more on the early voting later on in the show. but we start with tonight's lead. mitt romney's mourdock mess. senate candidate richard mourdock's god intended rape comments are now threatening to undermine mitt romney's careful effort to appeal to voters as moderate mitt. desperate to hide the extreme republican positions on women's health, romney is just wishing and hoping this will all go away. but someone forgot to tell the press corps this morning in ohio. >> governor, do you wish senator mourdock would pull that ad? >> thank you. have a good day. >> you, too. >> that's me? >> have a great day. >> thank you. have a good day. but please don't ask be ab
this week with a more spirited president obama trading jabs with republican rival mitt romney on everything from immigration to taxes. national polls show the race still very much a toss-up, and swing state surveys continue to tighten. we welcome in our panel this week. so kim, i talked to a lot of democrats this week who were elated by the president's performance. they say that the king is back. he's really rocking now. [laughter] momentum the big mo's with him. what do you think about that? are they right? >> well, i mean, the president certainly made his base thrilled with his performance at the debate. that was one of the things he needed to do. look, there's too many questions coming at the president's campaign. he needed to settle and calm those fears. yes, he succeeded at. what he did not arguably do at the debate is in any stem the damage that mitt romney inflicted in the first debate, which was to expose that he's not really running publicly with a second term agenda. and that's what independents and a lot of undecided voters are looking at that. in that he sounded like someone who
launching a full-scale all-out campaign push after debating mitt romney. starting tomorrow, the president begins a two-day six-state barn storm. he tried to build on the debate again, criticizing governor romney for moves to the middle. >> we've come up with a name for this condition. it's called romnesia. we had a severe outbreak last night. it was at least stage three romnesia. >> but the strategy last night, stay strong, sharp and relentless. the commander in chief brought a bayonet to a foreign policy knife fight. >> your strategy previously has been one that's been all over the map. i know you haven't been in a position to actually execute foreign policy. you mentioned the navy for example and we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. governor, we have fewer horses and bayonets. the question is not a game of battleship where we're counting ships. it is what are our capables? >> those were cheap shots that he took at mitt romney last night. i think you should treat your opponent with some respect, especially if you're the president of the united states and he didn't. >> governor romney
showed last night, and the time could not be worse for mitt romney. comments when an abortion appropriate came into a debate for indiana candidate for senate richard mourdock against democrat joe donnelly. they both say they're pro-life. richard mourdock said this. >> the i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that is something that god intended to happen. >> eliot: some republicans backed off michigan quickly. mike pens has urged richard mourdock to apologize. and others say quote, richard mourdock's comments damage all republicans especially romney as the fight for the women's vote intensifies. this could be a defining moment for romney and he should immediately denounce both murdoch and the comment. with the policy poll showing the lead to romney. with the race neck and neck, romney does not need the gender gap to come to the fore . andrea saul would only say governor romney disagrees with richard mourdock's comments, and they do not reflect his views. romney continued airing this richard mourdock endorsement the only ad he has released backing a senate candi
came out with a strong and aggressive performance against mitt romney on foreign policy. the first instant poll from cbs shows 53% of undecided voters say president obama came out on top, just 23% say toward romney. but there are some differing opinions out there. according to cnn poll, only 40% of viewers say romney won but 60% say he is ready to handle the responsibilities of president. and 32% of independents say they are now more likely to vote for romney after last night's performance. that is surprising since by most accounts president obama effectively painted romney as untested reckless and inconsistent when it comes to foreign policy. he also mocked romney's knowledge of the military with the most popular zinger of the night. when romney complained that the navy has its smallest fleet in nearly 100 years, here is the president's response. >> obama: governor we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military's changed. we have these things called aircraft carriers where plan
to the debate, tonight as mitt romney's team seemed to it tip its hand when it comes to the strategy. as with the first debate, when mitt romney attempt it to win over the undecided voters by, quote, hugging some of the president's policies? romney adviser dan senor was asked this morning about the difference between the candidates on iran on "morning joe." >> i think it's a shift from -- >> hold on. this is important. he has always said the military option should be looked at over and over. the military option should be the option of last resort. i think this is like splitting hair. the reality is governor romney has been laying out this it strategy for years. >> and that was on the topic of just iran, but as you saw there, the president just landing or that's mitt romney i should say landing. both men are in boca raton. john hileman had a little fun of governor romney's expense regarding what we might see tonight. >> i'm mitt romney, and i'm running in the middle. i'm running in the middle. >> running in the middle has hileman tried to mime him. the president arrived in florida onl
are in the homestretch of the race for the white house. president obama and mitt romney met to debate foreign policy at lynn university in boca raton florida, last night and when it was all over, romney's running mate, congressman paul ryan, picked a winner close to his heart. >> i think governor romney won this debate and you know why i think he won it? because americans, for a third time now got to see a man ready to become a great president. >> eliot: the polls suggest voters saw the debate a little differently. undecided voters in a cbs news poll favored president obama's performance by 30 points over mitt romney. registered voters in a cnn poll gave the president an 8-point lead over his rival and voters in 11 swing states gave mr. obama an 11-point debate margin over romney in a public policy poll. those swing state voters also favored the president by 6 points when they were asked who they planned to support. the big sur prices last night for much of the debate, mitt romney seemed more concerned with obscuring the differences
romney tied at 47% among likely voters. this is a dead heat. but the president is leading in the likely electoral count. the new yoknew yor york times b shows that the president has 288 compared to 2508 for mitt romney. 270 are needed to win the election. the times blog gives president obama a 67% chance of winning the election versus a 32% chance for mitt romney. so far, 4.4 million americans have already cast their votes, absentee ballots, or early votings have been used. later in this show, we'll have much more on what those early voting numbers mean and on the republican efforts to keep democratic votes down. but we start with tonight's lead. mitt romney's playing politics with foreign policy. tonight's debate topic is foreign policy, an area where the president has proven himself time and time again. it's a different story for governor romney. he stumbled on international affairs throughout this campaign. and he has shown an unsteady hand on the tragedy in libya. unsteady and highly political. just hours after ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed at the u.
/50, >>> it's national bologna day. it really is, and with 13 days to go, mitt romney says yes, he does want you to vote for a republican senator who thinks rape is something that god intended to happen. >> are you fired up? are you ready to go? >> the campaign enters the final stretch. >> 13 days of the race for the white house. >> if the schedules, events and remarks are any indication. >> you'll know where the race will be won. >> we'll win iowa again. >> we're going to win colorado. >> the president will hit four states just today. >> racking up the miles on air force one. >> 5300 miles. >> we know the thing is really close. >> how close is it? >> it's all about math versus momentum. >> our campaign is gaining. >> do they know something that we don't? >> this is a bluff. >> mitt romney still has an electoral math problem. >> our campaign is gaining. >> fake it until you make it. >> mitt romney talks out of all sides of his mouth. >> this fall i'm supporting richard mourdock for senate. >> life is a gift from god, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, it is something t
romney chance another ill timed ill-advised attack. iran, is the u.s. on the verge of face to face talks over the country's nuclear ambitions, or is the time for talking over? afghanistan, how would either of these candidates end america's longest war without the taliban regaining precious ground? with our latest nbc news "wall street journal" poll showing the race a dead heat the stakes couldn't be higher. both parties and their candidates in the fight of their lives for florida, tonight round three. >> big question who will win? and i've been saying up until a couple of weeks ago probably obama by a few points. now i have absolutely no idea. >> 40% is not a great number for a president a couple weeks before election day. >> in the last few months there's a lacking narrative, absence after clear vision where we go. >> let's get straight to it. joining me is sean spicer. sean, good to have you here. tonight's debate will be broken into six separate sections, moderated by bob schieffer. each focusing on a foreign policy hot spot. we want to drill down on some of these. the contrast betwee
dignity. i think romney has a more self-righteous view of america's rights in the world and it's discredited. george w. did that for us. with romney we've been doing what we did before. what got us into trouble before, hoping that doing it the same way would have a different result. there's no logical reason to believe that would be so. that's "hardball" for tonight. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. we are 14 days to election day and here's where the race stands. a new poll shows president obama with a two-point national lead over mitt romney. 48% to 46%. nbc's battleground map shows the president has 243 electoral votes, solidly in his corner while mitt romney has 206 in his. 89 electoral votes are considered toss ups. remember, it takes 270 votes to win the presidency. the latest from the "new york times'" 538 blog gives the president a 78% chance of winning. romney has 30% chance. 5.1 million people have already voted. that includes more than 812,000 people in the key state of oh
. we have a whole trunk full. all right. maybe the romney/ryan naval solution isn't quite that antiquated. still, they say the darnedest things, don't they? as for us, time to batten down the hatches. there will be giants to slay! >> jennifer: well, at last night's debate, mitt romney did seem kind of hard-pressed to come up with any real criticism of the obama administration's foreign policy positions. as our own john fuglesang here at current tv, he put it so wonderfully, it was as if romney were introducing the me, too doctrine. so how much does mitt romney support the president's foreign policy? well, let me count the ways. he agrees with the president's proposed 2014 withdrawal from afghanistan. he agrees with putting sanctions on iran. and he agrees with the president's handling of the iraq war. and the drone strikes and targeted killings in pakistan. but one place the candidates do diverge is on spending. here's what that looks like when you put the two plans side by side. president obama would hono
>> romney will also be campaigning today in iowa, says he's got the momentum on his side. >> we haven't heard an agenda from the president and that's why his campaign is taking on water and our campaign is full speed ahead. >> the romney campaign, though, is distancing itself today from republican senate candidate in indiana, richard mourdock who romney only this week endorsed in a tv ad, the indiana republican set off a firestorm in a debate last night with these comments about rape and abortion. >> i struggled with it myself for a long time but i came to realize life is that gift from god and i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> and they can just get along. monday's boca debate, "daily show" style. >> i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden. drones are being used in drone strikes and i support that entirely. and feel the president was right. i want to underscore the same point the president made. i felt the same as the president did. i supported his action there. absolutely the right thi
on economic policy. mitt romney would tell a crowd of iowa supporters and the world how he would lead the country forward into a new era of prosperity and growth. romney spoke today and yes romney did dust off the same five-point economic plan he has been touting for months. the only thing remotely fresh that romney offered was more cries for change wrapped in a series of unrelenting attacks on president obama who apparently bears sole responsibility for everything that has gone wrong in washington the fast four years. >> this is a year of a choice. americans want to see changes. four years ago people voted for a partisan president and washington is in gridlock because of it president obama reminds us that he inherited a terrible economy. it's not what he inherited but with the misguided policies that slowed the recovery and caused millions of americans to endure lengthy poverty. >> eliot: with change in the latest theme for the drive to the white house smith fired back saying, the only ching romney is offering is to take us back to the same failed policies that crashed our economy in
military has changed. we have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. >> romney's strategy, be agreeable. >> would you have stuck with mubarak? >> no. i believe as the president indicated and said at the time that i supported his action there. we had to go into pakistan. we had to go in to get osama bin laden. na was the right thing to do. that's widely reported drones are being used in drone strikes and i support that. >> did mitt romney muff his chance to rule those auto workers in ohio? >> i'm a son of detroit. born in detroit. my dad was head of a car company. i like american cars. and i would do nothing to hurt the u.s. auto industry. my plan to get the industry on its feet when it was in real trouble was not to start writing checks. it was president bush that wrote the first checks. i disagreed. these companies need to go through a managed bankruptcy. >> governor romney, you keep on trying to, you know, air brush history here. you were very clear, that you would not provide government assistance to the u.s. auto companies even if they went through bankruptc
after a debate here that saw president obama on offense attacking mitt romney's view of the world as romney played it safe, agreeing with many of the president's positions all night. good morning, i'm willie geist. this is another special edition of rockerfeller. we are set up again at rack's downtown eatery in boca raton. last night the american public got its last side by side-view of the candidates before election day, two weeks from today. polls showing this race as tight as it can be. the president and governor romney sought to leave an impression on the tens of millions of americans watching at home before they head to the voting booths. let's go through what we saw in that debate hall last night at lynn university. the foreign policy issue many predicted would dominate the high, the attack in bengahzi essentially swept under the rug. out of the gate, the candidates focusing on a wide range of issues from iran to afghanistan and for a while even the auto bailout. less than five minutes into the debate, romney mentioned the death of osama bin laden. president obama came out a
with a uso-like where indicate katery perry will perform. but the enemy, mitt romney is also on the march. reflies from nevada to iowa -- wait -- nevada iowa to ohio, and all of these states have early voting. look. in nevada where 11% of the population has already voted there are good signs for the democrats. 45% democrats, 35 republican. in iowa almost a quarter of the stated has already voted, 47% democrats, 31% republicans. in ohio counter insurgency effort by republicans. that state doesn't report party affiliation so we have less intel there, but we know that 8% of turned in their ballots. and the president is ahead in the polls there. now let's take a look on the ground. in ohio the obama campaign has 131 field offices. meanwhile the romney army -- maybe i should say navy -- has just 40. in iowa, the president, 66 field offices, romney has ten. in nevada 26 for obama, ten for romney. i was reviewing the troops if florida and virginia, waves of bah -- battalions each day. face-to-face target contacts with target voters at their homes/barracks. thousands are troop

is the only senate candidate mitt romney has endorse and cut an ad for this season. he just released the ad in support of mourdock monday and the rape comments came tuesday night. mccain said he will no longer support mourdock unless he apologizes for those remarks but most republicans are staying in mourdock's corner. santorum is saying it is gotcha politics and romney says while he does not agree with his statements, he supports him for senate. >>> president obama discussed the issue yesterday in an interview with jay leno. the interview was not all serious. the two took a lighter tone when discussing donald trump. >> what's this thing with trump and you? it's like me and letterman. what's he got against you? >> obama: you know, this all dates back to when we were growing up together in kenya. >> trump said he'll donate $5 million to a charity of obama's choice if he releases his records. back with more bill after the break.
